About this course

How do you know if your new invention idea is already out there – already patented?
You don’t – unless you pay a patent agency $200 - $800 to search for you – or try doing your own search on the complex, confusing patent office website. Unfortunately, finding the right search tools on is like searching for a needle in a haystack. You can’t afford to pay an agency and you don’t have time to figure out the maze to do your own search. Until now.

Finally, there is a better solution – that allows you to easily navigate and do your own patent search for every new invention idea – the Do Your Own Patent Search course.

This step-by-step, 5-module course guides you through a simple 1-2-3 process - that points you directly to the most effective search tools on – the same tools that patent attorneys and agents use. Do Your Own Patent Search saves you hundreds of dollars from paying agencies and thousands of dollars pursuing ideas that are already patented.

What you will learn?
Learn how to do your own patent search - with the same method used by patent attorneys:
1. Simple Keyword Search - beginning for every patent search
2. Advanced Keyword Search - refine your search to uncover more relevant patents
3. Class Codes Search - an advanced method to yield additional relevant patents
4. References Cited patents - an additional source of further relevant patents
